This is a spacious four bedroom beach home located in a quiet cul-de-sac at Bryans Beach, Ohiwa. There is ample room for cars, boats and tents plus a large understorey garage with ping-pong table and sofas. Upstairs are two double beds, bunks and singles to sleep ten. A large sunny deck with an ocean view and BBQ caters for sundowners and al fresco dining while the freestanding woodburner inside makes for cosy winter evenings. Two refridgerators and an extra downstairs freezer cope with the supplies needed to feed and water the crew. One minutes walk puts you on the ocean beach with its’ safe swimming, surf and Kontiki fishing plus the opportunity for long walks with great views of White Island and East Cape. The calm waters of Ohiwa harbour and Waiotahi estuary are just a few minutes away by car. Very safe bathing, kayaking, windsurfing, shellfish gathering and flounder fishing are all catered for here. Local activities include biking the Dunes Trail, Motu road trail or the more adventurous Pakihi mountain biking trail. Golf courses at both Ohope and Opotiki. Freshwater recreation is also close by. The beautiful Waioweka and Waimana rivers are great for swimming, canoeing, campfires and are also excellent trout fisheries. A little closer to Ohiwa are the Otara and Waiotahi rivers which boast the same activities on a more intimate scale.

Whakatane is approximately 40 minutes by car and boasts good shopping, cafes, restaurants and of course a cinema to help cure camp-fever on a wet day. Great fish and chips too.

    This house was great for our big group of adults from a tramping club - plenty of room and very close to the lovely beach. Well equipped kitchen. Good parking. Nice fire to warm the house as the weather was cold and clear. Plenty of nice walks in the area. A lovely area to visit.
